"I run a big business and it consumes a lot of time. Cricket for me has always been an interest and will remain so," Srinivasan said.
"I had a fruitful innings at the ICC.The new financial models, the new media rights -these were brought into place when I was in charge. I have always believed in doing the job that I have at hand and I am satisfied with my contribution," he further added.
